First, don't be flustered. You can do this.

I've only been a kind of unschooler the last two years, and we follow a very loose curriculum my 15 year old dd likes and believes will profit her later in life. It's structured by her needs and wants, like all unschooling is. I have to work full time too, so she is basically at another relatives house near my job. The other relative does no teaching at all.

Secondly, the books listed in the Sonlight curriculum are very good and interesting. My daughter says she would have read them anyway. We also mixed it with a lot of books from the Charlotte Mason site: A child who loves to read will be very happy with books they suggest. I suggest you check out I have the "Heart of Mathematics" book and for the first time can say I enjoy math. My dd likes this book a lot too.

Having said all that, maybe sit down with each child and find out where they want to go with it this year. If they are not so verbal, give them a week off or two and see where their interests lie. Even TV and gaming can have a place. Don't forget, the public library is your best friend.

I am sure others could give you better advice but this is how our experience goes. Good luck to you.
